  1. My point was just that the latest map still shows the route 8 despite it having been renumbered to the 44.
  2. Last I checked, the route 8 had been renumbered to the 44!
  3. Just a little something I noticed. The current system map still shows the route 8 servicing Rideau Street after 1AM.
  4. GOA transit news, info etc

    http://www.octranspo.com/ready4rail/new_winter_service_starts_on_dec_24 Winter Service changes have been posted. Quite the list!
  5. Arrival screens have been installed at Billings bridge (in the shelters that are used more often) Some are turned on now, but some are still off.
  6. Double decker bus order

    It seems like that was the case. Like any previous pilot project (such as 4201-4202 and 5001-5002) they owned them, they just decided not to keep them in this case. I think, at least.
  7. Double decker bus order

    They were sold to BC Transit. (9529-9531)
  8. The Trillium Line

    I've seen several of them broken intermittently at Carleton over the last week. The gates are fairly fast, but for the most part don't open quite fast enough for most people. You kind of have to suddenly stop and wait for an instant before the gates open enough for you to exit. Other than that, passenger flow through the gates is fine.
  9. The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    GeoOttawa seems to have been updated with the updated planned extension to Moodie Drive including the Moodie MSF. It also shows a section of track stretching west all the way just past the Wesley Clover Parks Campground. For a future extension, but it seems a little strange that it's being built as part of Stage 2. Edit: Don't know if it was mentioned before, but the Moodie station platform isn't on the main westbound track. Is it possible it would be discontinued once the LRT reaches Kanata?
  10. The Trillium Line

    I managed to get a photo of the gates that are on this morning. Seems they were on but this time they were open (all of them were displaying the green check mark?).
  11. The Trillium Line

    Half of the fare gates on the northern platform at Carleton were turned on this morning. They were blocked off and anyone who was getting off at that end of the platform was directed through the emergency exit instead.
  12. Invero Light Rebuild Project

    From what I've seen (of what I think are refurbed buses), the yellow poles look cleaner, the seat inserts look much bluer (less faded), and the metal grills(?) at the bottom of the windows have a brushed metal look instead of grey paint (which I think is peeling on some older buses). There are probably other differences too, but those are just ones that I've noticed.
  13. The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I took a (very bad) video (through a dirty bus window) of one crossing over Riverside last Friday (seemingly returning from OttawaU, or Lees). Seems like tests up to the university will be more common now! I wonder when we'll see the first tests of trains coupled together.
  14. If they did open it on the 1st, it would be terrible if it encountered some issues on its first day.
